Grants available for anti-bullying projects

Schools, police agencies and community groups that are working to combat bullying can now apply to share in the up to $1 million in grants from civil forfeiture proceeds that were announced last week.

This expansion of the grant eligibility criteria follows yesterday's anti-bullying summit in Vancouver, where parents, educators, police, student safety experts and other attendees received an update on B.C.'s ERASE Bullying strategy, including the roll out of a new website (http://www.erasebullying.ca) where people can report bullying anonymously.

Bullying prevention is the latest high-profile community safety goal to receive timely support from civil forfeiture proceeds. In the current round of grants, government will also consider projects focused on preventing youth involvement in crime, combating human trafficking and sexual exploitation, preventing family violence and violence against women, and community crime prevention. Applications are now open and more details are here.
